Staff who maintain the news homepages on Microsoft’s MSN website and its Edge browser – used by millions of Britons every day – have been told that they will be no longer be required because robots can now do their jobs.
The people at MSN have probably developed some sort of model based on scoring on perhaps source, title, content. They know that “Kanye West” gets lots of readers, and mostly scores high for entertainment. Maybe “Boris Johnson” gets lots of readers and mostly scores high for news. Add up the scores and the highest articles get selected.
